Two female directors in their thirties, start an investigation based on their own sexual frustrations to understand desire from a female point of view. As an excuse to get more answers, they decide to make a film based on real women's erotic memories and reflections. They send out a casting call and over 100 ordinary Copenhagen women reply. As the shootings progress it dawns on the Filmmakers that what was just meant to be a casting, instead becomes an overwhelming shared experience of intimacy. The casting couch is turned into an exploration space for the young women to share their true desires, fantasies and reflections on their experiences with sex, shame, lust and pleasure. The film gives a rare look into the secret language of young female sexuality.
The film trailer states that one hundred women were asked to participate, but only about twenty actually showed up. The ladies are asked to explain how they lost their virginity or something similar. Most of them looked uncomfortable and unprepared to spontaneously share something very personal. Each lady was standing alone in a small room, and some were given a cheap breakfast table chair to sit on.
In the last twenty minutes, the ladies are revisited, and each one takes off her clothes, and tries to pose in a sexy manner. Most of them looked like deer in the headlights. It was sad.
I felt like these ladies were victims of a low-budget production that exploited them. They were treated like a herd of animals. Their stories were exposed, but not explored.
